Perhaps Gideon's mistake is saying anything at all before they had a working prototype. They didn't take into account people's zealotry regarding these matters.
Personally I don't care about PPC but if I was one of those who do I'd be happy that anyone is even considering working on a peripheral like this, made for such a niche group, and would cut the developers A LOT of slack.
